Client California High-Speed Rail Authority

Project description Realisation of the high-speed rail system in California. The California high-speed rail lines will run from San Francisco to the Los Angeles and will eventually extend to Sacramento and San Diego.

TUC RAIL's assignment Within the framework of the cooperation agreement between CAHSRA and the Belgian government signed on July 7th 2010, TUC RAIL was requested to carry out a peer review on the California High Speed Train Project’s ‘Operations and Maintenance Preliminary Plan’. The aim of the peer review was to examine the feasibility of the Plan and to verify whether no major conceptual errors were made at this initial stage in the development of high-speed rail.

Based on the national and international expertise and knowledge of TUC RAIL, this analysis was completed with some general considerations and recommendations.
